Spyrotone is a relaxation and strength-training system that emphasizes slow, flowing movement, coordinated breathing and mental focus. The portable, hand-held device facilitates a pattern to stretch and release tension stored in the body due to postural instability, imbalance and misalignment and is particularly useful in managing common, chronic tension of the hands, arms, neck & shoulders. Coordinated breathing deepens the effect, calming the mind and soothing the nervous system. Regular practice can help change tendencies that cause tension, increasing range of movement and strength so the body works more efficiently, with less strain and fatigue.
OPEN-HANDED DESIGN vs A CLOSED GRIP
Unlike conventional devices requiring use of a grip, that cause muscle fibers to shorten, adhere to one another and their muscle fascia, making them stiff, Spyrotone features a unique, open-handed design that frees and individuates the smallest muscles to work independently within their groups, training them to return to full relaxed-length. Alternately stretching and loading the muscles from side-to-side with rotation and pivoting stance, bridges gaps in coordination and balance and develops core stability. Incorporating single-leg balance, closed stance (eagle pose), horse and warrior stances, engages the abdominal groups and muscles in the back, carrying the pattern deeper into the hips and legs where it becomes rooted to a more solid stance.
"Spyrotone is a very enjoyable, recreational practice in that you learn something both about yourself and nature. You become aware of the habits that lead to tension and stiffness, fatigue and mental distraction, and you feel a sense of freedom that comes with an ability to use your weight and gravity more to your advantage. Everything more balanced and at a state of rest. It's energizing, invigorating and free of monotonous routine. In the ten years that I have been using Spyrotone, I have yet to exhaust all it has to offer."
